The award-winning Herald Community Newspapers is seeking an editor and a reporter to cover the diverse hamlets of Nassau County’s South Shore. The ideal candidate in both cases is adept with news and feature writing and holds a bachelor’s or master’s degree in journalism, English or a related field. A newspaper internship or prior publishing experience is a must for the editor’s post, but not required for the reporter’s position. Work on a student newspaper or other publication is always a plus.
Herald Community Newspapers, with a readership of roughly 200,000, is among the largest, most respected community news groups in New York State, covering 26 distinct communities on both Nassau’s South and North Shores. The group has consistently ranked among the top five community news groups in the New York Press Association’s annual Better Newspaper Contest, garnering hundreds of press awards over the years. Herald alumni have gone on to work for many major media outlets, from Newsweek to The Daily Mail, and CNN to the BBC.
Qualified candidates should email their cover letters and resumes to Executive Editor Scott Brinton, firstname.lastname@example.org.
